Plot[edit | edit source]

Detective Olivia Benson investigates a possible rape, however the case is made extremely difficult due to the victim's refusal to submit to a rape kit or cooperate with the detective in any form. During the course of the investigation Benson encounters Agent Dana Lewis and discovers the victim might have been targeted due to her status as an FBI informant and connections with the Earth Defenders Group.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • Elliot: You are a jinx.
    Star / Dana: Who? Me?
    Elliot: The last year at the courthouse, when I got shot, you were there. You are bad luck. Every time you show up, I nearly get killed.
    Star / Dana: You are still 'above' ground, hon, maybe I'm your good luck charm.
  • Olivia: Elliot told me to tell you you are nuts.
    Star / Dana: That's just a concussion talk. Star grins
  • Star / Dana: Hey Liv, what caliber gun do you use in the NYPD?
    Olivia: 38.
    Star / Dana: Oh, mine's 40.
    Olivia: That gun there, that's a 9 mil.
    Star / Dana: Aah, mine's 10. And you know what they say. Size does matter.
